PocketWizard MiniTT1 overview

  • 1Description

The PocketWizard MiniTT1 Radio Slave Transmitter utilizes PocketWizard's new ControlTL firmware platform, is part of an ultra-versatile radio slave system, and is dedicated specifically to the Canon E-TTL II flash control system. It simply slides directly into the camera's hot shoe. There are no special settings to make or modes to call up. Use the camera, on-camera flash, or flash commander controls for flash compensation, zone and ratio control. It supports single or multiple dedicated flash units. The MiniTT1 is the ideal addition to any Canon E-TTL II flash system. It works in combination with the FlexTT5 Transceiver, and since this system works on digital radio technology, it can support E-TTL around corners, out-of-sight, or in bright sunlight.

2 Channel Settings + Learn Mode
Each setting can also be programmed to transmit any of 20 ControlTL channels for TTL photography and 32 standard channels for manual flash photography. The FlexTT5 Transceiver also has a three-zone selector switch, Out of the box, the MiniTT1 is programmed for PocketWizard channels 1 and 2.
HyperSync & High-Speed Sync Technology
Enables X-sync speeds of up to 1/8000 with full-power flash. High-Speed Sync provides auto flash with the camera's shutter speed setting, up to 1/8000th. Unique programming optimizes HSS for better operation and more shots per set of batteries.
HyperSync & High-Speed Sync Technology
Supports flash sync speeds of up to 1/500th sec. High-Speed Sync auto syncs flash system with the camera's shutter speed setting, up to 1/8000th.
Built-in Hot Shoe, use with any flash
Features a hot shoe on the top, so that you can still mount a flash unit directly onto the camera. This allows you to combine your remote flash with the on-camera flash, or use the on-camera flash for additional E-TTL II control only. Hot shoe contacts automatically detect dedicated E-TTL or simple hot shoe flash.
Reverse Compatible & Basic Triggering
Operates on the same channels as all other PocketWizards to work with any unit you may already have. Basic Triggering mode enables standard use with virtually any hot-shoe camera.
Low-Profile Design
The MiniTT1 lies flat to stay out of the way and uses an internal antenna.
Configurable and Upgradeable
The MiniTT1 features a mini-USB port, which makes it upgradeable and "future-proof" for continuous improvements and compatibility upgrades. PocketWizard Utility software, available on www.pocketwizard.com enables setting custom functions, adjusting HyperSync timing and setting channels.

    PocketWizard MiniTT1 reviews

    MiniTT1 Radio Slave Transmitter for Canon E-TTL & E-TTL II Systems is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 198.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PocketWizard Genius I purchased three FlexTT5's a few months back with the hopes to improve my radio slave capability with my Canon Speedlights. I opted to order the MiniTT1 just because it's smaller and lighter on my Canon 5DM3's. Off-camera flash capabilities are endless. I attached my speedlights to the FlexTT5's in my softboxes for dynammic flare or attached them to a few monopods in a open room for added light coverage. When the MiniTT1 is attached to my 5DM3, TTL at a wedding reception returns beautiful images. Thank you PocketWizard for the firmware update that is compatible with the Canon 5DM3. Oh, forgot to mention this, they are also compatible with the PocketWizard Plus II transmitters. Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good so far. Simple, easy to pack and works well with the TT5 and teh AC3. I shoot with a 1DS-MKIII, and that's a brick. This unit is pretty light and doesn't add more noticable weight. Even with the AC3. I would recomend getting the AC3. If you're shooting with an EX580II there are issues with communications between the TT1 and the TT5. They give you a sock that solves this issue. Now, if you're worried about fiddling with the power output of your EX580II and have to lower the sock and change the output and attached the sock again, just get the AC3 Zone Controller. You can control output from there without having to mess with sock on the strobes.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disapointing If my car brakes were as unreliable as this unit is I would have been a dead duck by now. Using it in basic transmitting mode with a Canon 580 in auto or 430 flash on top of camera to triger a studio flash via reguler pocket wizard receiver. It is NOT reliable... I upgraded the software to 5.0 It does not fire, intermittently, and has caused me to miss some very important shots! It also sometime causes the 580 flash to blast, full power washing out important shots. Pressing the test button sometimes resets it. But I didn't spend all this money on a product that constantly needs re-setting. A very disappointed user.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great support! It could run a little longer distance with the Canon flashes, haven't tried it with anything else (yet). I had been using Canon's IR remote when on the move (having someone else point the flash at clubs, etc) and this makes that MUCH easier. I broke the bottom plastic hotshoe off the MiniTT1 (metal would have been better, and I sure do miss the easy-on/easy-off of the latest Canon flashes), but getting information on service was quick and easy, something I can't say for most other companies. I called up, and immediately talked to a real person! She tranferred me to the right dept., where I talked to another real person! I didn't have to press any numbers!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great transmitter* The MiniTT1 by itself is a great transmitter for other PocketWizard products. The issues I had with the ControlTL system are with the FlexTT5 unit - not the MiniTT1. It is very compact, non-intrusive, and looks professional. This will work with PocketWizard Plus II as receivers. While you can use a FlexTT5 as a transmitter, this unit is much smaller. Just make sure you do your research and read all product literature and other user reviews before purchasing with a FlexTT5 as a receiver. Again - the MiniTT1 is great, the FlexTT5 as a receiver - use caution.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from High Speed Synchro with Studio Flashes! I use it to sync my studio flashes at high speeds. I have been able to do 1/2000 but i don't get the full frame covered with my Canon EOS 5D Mk.2. To equalise uneven exposure i use the same method i use with muy digital back: expose reference image with identical exposure and diffuser directly in front of the lens. Desaturate this image, invert it and combine it using the soft light method. It has some quirks, every time i change the shutter speed i have to turn the MiniTT1 off and on to get consistent results. I don't use dedicated Canon flashes, so i can't comment on how it handles TTL etc..

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from On camera flash does not work correctly It sounded great. Triggering my normal pocket wizards while still allowing me to have an on camera flash. Let me sum this up in a few experiences. #1 if you shoot a photo with ETTL on and the exposure is correct and then put the TT1 between your camera and your flash the exposure drops three stops and is completely incorrect. #2 On camera flash completely fails to fire sporadically and sometimes the TT1 needs to be removed and replaced on the body for the on camera flash to start firing again. Not a good idea to have a non canon product between your body and your flash! I returned it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is AWESOME!!! I already owned 4 FlexTT5s and wanted something a little smaller for on top of my camera, and I needed 1 other TT5 so I had 1 for each of my lights. These things are AWESOME!! You have complete control if you use an AC3 Zone Controller, and you can shoot in ETTL or Manual, whichever you prefer. The only down side to this system happens if you are shooting with certain Canon flashes like the 580 EX and 580EX II. Those flashes create RF interference which can limit your range. Pocket Wizard does make 2 different RF shields to help combat this problem, one soft and one hard. Other than that, this is a phenominal system to trigger all of you lights, and your camera too if you buy the cable.
